In 2012, the APS Council voted to establish the Herman Feshbach Prize in Theoretical Nuclear Physics to recognize and encourage outstanding research in theoretical nuclear physics.
The prize honors Herman Feshbach for his seminal contributions to nuclear physics.
The fundraising committee reached their goal and raised more than $200,000 to fully endow the Herman Feshbach Prize in Theoretical Nuclear Physics. Thank you to all of the donors who helped make the establishment of this prize possible.
